The Protech Knives Malibu is a manual flipper happy to join the Protech family and sports a fast and fluid, flipper deployment and button lock mechanism. This slim folder exhibits all the precision fit and finish we know and love from Protech automatics delivered in a quick operating manual folder. Great for everyday carry, discreet tactical use or as a larger gentleman's carry option. This GPKnives Exclusive version comes with an Acid Washed CPM-20CV Modified Wharncliffe blade, blasted hardware and Black anodized Aluminum Handle.

Brand new, directly from Protech Knives, USA.

Blade: The Malibu comes with a sub-3.5" blade made of American CPM-20CV stainless steel. The straight edge has plenty of cutting power and a nearly full length swedge that provides optimal piercing performance. A high saber grind on the blade delivers a great combination of durability and cutting performance while the rugged, tumbled and Acid Washed finish is discreetly non-reflective and hides wear from use over time.

Handle: Made from Milled Black Hard Anodized 6061-T6 aluminum, the handles are contoured for optimal comfort in the hand with subtle finger grooves for enhanced traction and a secure grip. The sweeping angle of the handle aligns the blade for better ergonomics, locking the hand in behind the integral flipper tab guard. The smooth, comfortable surface elevates the style making it a perfect choice as a Gentleman's tactical folder. An easy-to-use button lock mechanism delivers smooth, reliable operation and rock solid lockup.

Carries via a right hand, tip-up, black DLC coated, stainless steel deep carry clip.

CPM 20CV: CPM 20CV is a highly wear-resistant, powder metallurgy stainless tool steel, an analog to Bohler's M390, and offers some of the best corrosion resistance and wear resistance in combination with a relative ease of sharpening. These properties along with a working hardness in the low 60s HRC make 20CV a prime choice among custom and production makers.
